The PDC European Tour is a series of twelve events staged across mainland Europe, each carrying a £135,000 prize fund.
The European Tour touches down in Holland, Germany, Gibraltar and Austria, with the 48-man field entertaining bumper crowds in some of darts' fastest-growing hotbeds.
The field is comprised of the top 16 players from the PDC ProTour Order of Merit (seeded through to the Second Round) plus a further 18 UK Qualifiers, eight West/South European qualifiers, four Home Nation qualifiers, a Nordic and Baltic qualifier and an East European qualifier.
Each event is streamed exclusively live on desktop or mobile, with customers able to watch every match live at Bet365
and a host of other bookmaker sites.
Following the 12 event of the series, the top 32 players from the final European Tour Order of Merit will comprise the field for October's European Championship.
Ross Smith is responsible for the only nine-dart finish on the European Tour to date, with that coming against Adrian Lewis at the 2013 Gibraltar Trophy.
